flooding potential with heavy rain, strong winds, perhaps power outages. and coastal flooding. all things we are watching. obviously the rain and wind are my biggest concerns. coastal flooding, i expect it will be a minor event. with splash over. a couple of pockets here minor coastal flooding in usual spots for east facing beaches, noon time today. and it will be this evening for south coast. between 7:00 system and midnight. my concern is wind advisory. sustained winds up to 30 miles an hour. winds from southeast gusting 35 to 55. and which lends itself to some downed tree limbs and power outages when you the wind and rain, and you have got almost fall foliage on a lot of trees, that's a recipe for some power outages here in the next 24 hours. so this is all the rain that will drift toward us. it does come with downpours, perhaps in time for evening commute. boston right now at 52 degrees. and with clouds. and i will keep it cloudy and dry through 1:00 today.
9:45 am
and 3 p.m. only slight chance of a shower. much better chance at 5:00 today. and beyond. temperatures will stay flat middle of 50s through the afternoon, and continue to rise during the evening hours. and that's when we get up to overnight tonight. so we have future cast here pausing at noon time of the show you the real risk of rain lay as cross western new england. now let's take it over to about 3:00 p.m. i mentioned boston. keeping the chances relatively low around 3:00. not zero. but it will be lower than spots like western massachusetts. southwest new hampshire. where we have a better chance of rain at that time. by the way this is a brand new future cast. even if you have already seen it come back over to the screen. look at the fresh information. at 6:00 p.m. downpours during the evening commute staying just to the west of boston. i am not going to rule out some downpours through the city. so things will start to get messy here as folks head home from work. but especially after they are home. so dinner time tonight.
9:46 am
overnight tonight. we get pockets of heavy rain. when we start to see shading of deep red on the map there. that will be intense rain. that will be thunderstorms early tomorrow morning. thunderstorms gusty winds and potentially some severe thunderstorms. we will have to follow through that morning commute. but by 10:00 it is moving offshore. things are quieting down. so this being focused around the morning commute. terrible timing for t telling to you give yourself extra time. and today high temperatures late in the day climbing into upper 50s. tomorrow it will be 70. so it will get warm but real windy with gusts i was mentioning up to 55 miles an hour. seven-day forecast for the weekend always in view on the screen right now. 72 tomorrow. yes, but after that main area of rain moves out. during the afternoon we will have to watch out for spot showers before we dry out in the evening. 59 is the high on friday. fairly bright. mostly sunny on saturday. high of 55. 60s back for sunday and so is a chance for shower.
